Went out last night to get some of my last photos of the year. I'll definitely be going out on Sunday - but that will be too ride/enjoy, not to take pictures.

I was a bit surprised that they had fireworks, but enjoyed them nonetheless.

12th Street Amusements were closed...bummer.

I always forget how much of a hike Child's Restaurant/Dreamland Roller Rink is from everything else - to think that this used to be lined with shops/restaurants/etc - it's all by itself down there now. The place looks great and I really want to roller skate now.

Crowds were light until about 9:30 and then the place really started picking up.

TopSpin was down.

Thunderbolt at Denos was down.

Hope you enjoy the pix!

Thanks so much jim....you were the first person that came to mind when I heard the sad news. Coney hasn't had a bigger advocate - and I'm really glad I got to experience it with you at least once. Much gratitude to the Albert family for many years of fun.

Great Photos!!!! Thanks for the link.

I never saw a vending machine for kosher hot dogs before. Also, six bucks a head for the Wonder Wheel is a bit steep.
